to martin luther king jr. the president is going to be sworn in with king's bible on martin luther king jr. day. he'll be facing at that moment the lincoln memorial, where king delivered his famous "i have a dream" speech 50 years ago. as far as symbolism goes, it does not get better than that. and then what had gotten better are california's finances. for the first time in five years california will not have a budget deficit. in fact, democratic governor jerry brown today announced a budget for the next fiscal year that bloomberg news projects to have a $851 million surplus. a surplus. as recently as 2009 california ran a $49 billion budget deficit deficit. now $851 million surplus. thanks to voter-approved tax increase the past election, the budget actually increases investments, including for california schools. it takes a progressive to make the tough calls clean up the mess and put the state on the right track. just sayin', we tip our hat to california governor jerry brown. then way across the country in another deep blue state progressives are taking matters in their own hands. two

, martin luther king jr. said the same thing, using different words. instead of collective action he said "we cannot walk alone." in his "i have a dream" speech, the reverend martin luther king jr. said many of our white brothers as evidenced by their presence here today have come to realize that their destiny is tied up with our destiny, that their freedom is bound to our freedom. we can't walk alone. of course, conservatives never much liked dr. king. but conservatives claim an enduring devotion to our founding documents, the declaration of independence, the constitution, even though they have always had trouble believing those founding documents really apply to everyone. so of course, conservatives just hated this. >> we, the people, declare today that the most evident of truths, that all of us are created equal. is the star that guides us still, just as it guided our forebears through seneca falls and stonewall, just as it guided all those men and women, sung and unsung, who left footprints along this great mall, to hear a preacher say we can't walk alone. to hear a king proclaim that

who had ordered a gun through the mail. and martin luther king jr., by somebody who got their gun the same way. in 1968, in terms of robert f. kennedy being killed, we passed the 1968 gun control act, which up to that point was the strictest gun control we had had. one thing it did was restrict getting it through the mail. when they say things like you have to protect guns in your home against somebody mentally ill, that is an incentive to do the sane and obvious thing, and restrictions on gun dealers, not to sell ammunition over the internet, the way that the shooter in aurora bought their ammunition. >> so by their logic, right, i mean, it is really disgusting. so by their logic, are they saying schools are also drug-free zones, so basically we should let junkies come up and shoot up in the school yard? if we get through gun-free zones, drug-free -- the logic is ridiculous. it shows they're losing support, all the polls show it within their movement, outside their movement, and they know it is a death knell to fight this, the parents, the victims, the people who survived this gu
